Indica is a cannabis strain that is known for its sedative and calming feelings of relaxation and pain relief. Some indica strains offer high levels of CBD, which creates those relaxing body sensations without any psychoactive effects like euphoria or anxiety from THC-dominant strains.
Indica Weed Strains
If you want good indica strains, buy indicas with at least 16% THC (or higher). If you want indicas with even more powerful relaxation qualities but don’t care about getting stoned, look for indicas that contain CBD rather than high percentages of THC; this will create a less intense effect than other types of marijuana because there’s less psychoactivity involved. Indica strains are great for nighttime use and can be helpful in treating conditions like anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and muscle spasms.
One indica strain that is said to have particularly strong benefits is known as “Afghan Kush.” According to Herb.co, Afghan Kush was bred in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan and has been used for centuries because of its therapeutic properties. Some users report feeling a heavy body sensation combined with euphoria and creativity when using this indica-dominant hybrid strain.
Other popular indicas include Northern Lights, Bubba Kush, Master Kush, Tahoe OG, Blackberry Kush, and Granddaddy Purple. If you’re looking for a good indica to start your cannabis journey or an indica-dominant weed strain that will provide relief without getting you high, try one of these indicas!
Indica Vs Sativa
An indica cannabis strain is a type of marijuana that contains high levels of THC, or delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol. Indica plants typically grow shorter and bushier than their sativa counterparts. Sativa, which can be grown indoors as well as outdoors, has higher CBD content than THC. Strains with a high CBD-to-THC ratio tend to induce less psychoactive effects than their counterparts and can provide a more clear-headed and productive high. The best way to tell the difference between indica and sativa plants growing is by looking at the shape of the plant. Sativas grow tall, lanky stalks with more narrow leaves. Indica plant leaves tend to be wider and less tall.
